Highlights from 2013 The Inc. Leadership Conference

July 22, 2013

Inc. Magazine brought together business professionals for three-days of listening, learning and leadership lessons in San Diego last month.

The Inc. Leadership Forum is an annual conference that provides business professionals with the chance to connect with industry experts in the field of leadership and learn how to implement strategies to best grow their businesses. Over a three-day period, almost 400 business owners and top executives,  gathered for panel discussions, break-out sessions and networking.

Hiscox had an opportunity to serve as a sponsor at this year’s forum. We knew this event would be beneficial for small business owners to learn best practices on leadership, company culture and growth. We were excited to award complementary tickets to  three people who were either small business owners, or who work for small businesses.

This week, we’re highlighting takeaways from the Forum. Michael Robin of Rocksauce Studios, a Austin, Texas based application development company, will share four initiatives she learned at the forum that she plans to implement with her colleagues. Caitlin Florance, Hiscox’s Marketing Partnerships Manager, discusses how company culture shapes how a company operates. Stay tuned this week for these guest posts.

While at the forum, we also interviewed attendees about their thoughts on leadership. See the video below for their insights and other conference highlights.
